  • Patent number: 11550855
    Abstract: A cloud scraping system using pre-scraped big data includes an information providing server which, when receiving a scraping request from a user terminal, provides the user terminal with response information to the received scraping request, and a big data storage which stores pre-scraped information, wherein when the scraping request is about static information, the information providing server acquires the response information using the pre-scraped information. According to the above cloud scraping system using pre-scraped big data, there is an advantage that it is possible to quickly respond to a scraping request from the user terminal afterwards by pre-scraping and storing static information in the big data storage. Additionally, it is possible to improve the scraping server operation efficiency by making a proper use of a single or multi-processing scraping server based on policy information of a scraping target external institution.

  • Patent number: 11526485
    Abstract: A data system is provided for analyzing and maintaining data obtained from one or more data sources on which the data system depends. The system includes a primary database including current values used by the system and a collection of executable algorithms used to generate the data maintained in the primary database. In response to receiving a notification regarding a change in one of the data sources, a dependency database is used to establish an execution order for algorithms of the algorithm collection that are directly or indirectly dependent on the changed data. The algorithms identified in the execution order are then executed in accordance with the execution order and the corresponding result is stored in the primary database. The system may include data harvesters adapted to recognize changes in the data sources and to generate and transmit corresponding change notifications when such changes occur.

  • Patent number: 11520837
    Abstract: Clustering can be performed using a self-expression matrix in which noise is suppressed. A self-expression matrix is calculated that minimizes an objective function that is for obtaining, from among matrices included in a predetermined matrix set, a self-expression matrix whose elements are linear weights when data points in a data set are expressed by linear combinations of points, the objective function being represented by a term for obtaining the residual between data points in the data set and data points expressed by linear combinations of points using the self-expression matrix, a first regularization term that is multiplied by a predetermined weight and is for reducing linear weights of the data points that have a large Euclidean norm in the self-expression matrix, and a second regularization term for the self-expression matrix. A similarity matrix defined by the calculated self-expression matrix is then calculated.

  • Patent number: 11461294
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of importing data from a data source to a target storage system is disclosed. The method involves executing an automated data import process to retrieve data from the data source and update the target storage system based on the retrieved data. The automated data import process operates in dependence on a source data schema of the data source. The method involves detecting a change in the source data schema, and, in response to detecting the change in the source data schema, modifying the automated data import process. The modified automated data import process can subsequently be used to retrieve further data from the data source and update the target storage system based on the further retrieved data.

  • Patent number: 11442973
    Abstract: A system for storing document collections in a manner that facilitates efficient querying. Each document vector is hashed, by applying a suitable hash function to the components of the vector. The hash function maps the vector to a particular hash value, corresponding to a particular hyperbox in the multidimensional space to which the vectors belong. The vector, or a pointer to the vector, is then stored in a hash table in association with the vector's hash value. Subsequently, given a document of interest, documents similar to the document of interest may be found by hashing the vector of the document of interest, and then returning the vectors that are associated, in the hash table, with the resulting hash value.
